They say the first 3 days are the hardest when switching to a healthier lifestyle. Because we already eat this way about 75-80% of the time, it hasn’t been too tough. We’ll see how I feel next Wednesday, which is our designated “treat (cheat) night.” I have a feeling I’ll be missing my Dos Rita and nachos 😉
Breakfast: a couple of slices of Applegate Farms turkey and a few bites of coconut bark. The bark has raisins and currants in it for my carb. I know it wasn’t enough food, but after coaching all morning for 1960 CrossFit and holding job interviews for a front desk position for Complete Health & Rehab, I couldn’t find the time to eat a substantial breakfast.
Lunch: I did a little better. I heated us some left over chicken nuggets and ate those with an entire bag of steamable veggies. I drizzled some coconut aminos on the veggies for a little added flavor. Super delicious. I ate some more coconut bark for fat. On a side note, that coconut bark is saving my butt when it comes to fat. I sometimes forget to eat enough fat, which leaves me lethargic and uninspired during a WOD. These last 3 days, just by upping my fat intake, my energy has skyrocketed! Snack: Apple with Sunbutter and a couple of slices of turkey.
Dinner: After working a 14 hour day, I had no desire to cook. We went to Willie’s where we split a nice sized grilled catfish, double veggies, and salad topped with olive oil and vinegar.
